      Been hampered with a hamstring strain last 3 weeks, went out today and did a 5 mile run just slower than half marathon pace, looks all good again.

      One thing I've learned from getting older is that you have to let things heal. Whenever I've had nagging, lingering issues it's because I just don't rest injuries like I should.

      Started biking again and it's definitely helping my left knee (torn meniscus). I'm able to sleep through the night without pain now which is a plus and I'm also now able to start some strengthening exercises and stretches that also seem to be helping. If it continues to heal I'd like to try and start running again sometime this summer. We'll see.

      Last run of the year and topped out with 1275 miles. Most I have ever run in a calendar year.

      Longest run of this training block 16 miles, trying to build endurance for the latter parts of the Stafford 1/2 marathon in March which has a few hills.
      Hopefully I can beat last years time.

      Oh you'll be good if you are running 16 miles already.

      I finally started back running again about a month ago. Started with run/walk and I'm up to 2 miles every other day now. Still having some knee pain but it's gotten a little better. Still slow AF but hoping to eventually get some pace back. Trying to stay patient and not do too much too early. My weight really ballooned after my injury so I've started losing but it's slow going. I probably need to lose about 35 lbs by my birthday in May to reach my goal. Can be done but dieting is no fun for someone like me that loves food.

      Jeffing is probably the best approach to restarting running after a long lay off.

      Been away a few months due to family issues but have managed to carry on with the running. Sometimes it’s the only thing that keeps you sane ☺️

      Managed

      1.39.51 at the Stafford Half
      1.39.32 at the Shakespeare Half

      Got a couple of 10k’s lined up for June so need a shift in training emphasis.

      Those are good times, better than my PB (1:41).

      I’ve been biking mostly as it helps with my knee pain. Hope to start running again this summer if the knees heal up. Have dropped about 18lbs but still have about 30 to go ideally. Kind of stuck for now as I haven’t had time for this long as bike rides that burn through the calories.
